The BRABUS version of the four-seater forfour presented here takes smart to a totally new dimension: with a new turbo engine that delivers 130 kW / 177 bhp, a top speed of 221 km/h and acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds, the new smart forfour BRABUS is by far the fastest and most powerful smart that has ever been built. It represents the “high end experience” of the four-seater, as it combines performance and luxury in a compact car in a way that has never been done before. And what’s more, it will get your pulse racing, as it has been developed for sheer driving pleasure – but without losing sight of its traditional virtues: its engine, which, when driven in a restrained manner, is elastic, quiet and economical (standard petrol consumption 6.8 l) meets the demands of Euro 4. In terms of active and passive safety, the BRABUS fulfils the famously high standards of the Mercedes Car Group, with standard features including front, side and head airbags, and with esp and high-performance disc brakes on the rear axle, too.
130 kW / 177 bhp and a kerb weight of 1,090 kilograms make for a remarkable power-weight ratio – that is, the weight of the vehicle divided by the kilowatts (or, alternatively, the bhp) of the engine: 8.4 kg per kW, or just under 6.2 kg per bhp are figures that quite a few sports cars would be proud of. It’s no surprise, then, that the smart forfour BRABUS provides for an all-round thrilling driving experience.
